This is supposed to be funny. But it is not. This smacked hypocrisy, selfish and greed on Arthur Finkelstein's part. Arthur Finkelstein is 59 years old Republican Political Consultant for Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC) for many years.
As you may know who Senator Jesse Helms is -- he is incredibly homophobe. He railed against the rights of gays and lesbians from day one. He even ranted that AIDS is a punishment sent to gays from God. Blah, blah, blah.
Arthur Finkelstein is Rohemosexual. Arthur worked closely with Jesse Helms for many years and even thought the Massachusetts Courts should not decide whether if gays can marry or not. And Arthur took his partner of 40 years to Massachusetts to marry so that he can be entitled to his rights and benefits, just like any heterosexual couples.
Apparently, he felt that he is entitled to that right but not everyone else. Only him and his partner, that is an exception. But not me or anyone else. Arthur does NOT give a damn if you or me gets to have the same rights and benefits, but he will take advantage of it for himself.
How dare of he to impose the roadblocks that gays has worked hard for years to break and suddenly, he basked himself with the right to marry whom we fought hard to get it for people like Arthur?!
Do I smell the stench of hypocrisy within the Republican Party? Of course.
